Forum: announcements Subject: FBI Gag order against the Internet Archive is rescinded

IMG_0760.JPG
The Internet Archive was served a National Security Letter by the FBI demanding information about a patron of the Archive. The Archive fought it with the help of the EFF and ACLU.

We won.

We can now talk about it, and what it is like to get a secret demand. We hope that this will be useful for the others that will receive these powerful demands.
